SAN FRANCISCOâ??March 7, 2012â??Apple® today announced the new Apple TV® featuring 1080p programming including iTunes® movies and TV shows, Netflix, Vimeo, photos and more in HD. With iTunes in the Cloud, customers can purchase and play their favorite movies and TV shows from the iTunes Store® and watch them instantly on their HD TV. The new Apple TV features a simpler, refined user interface making it easier than ever to access your purchased movies, TV shows and music with iTunes Matchâ?* right from iCloud®. With AirPlay®, users can stream or mirror their favorite content from their iPad® or iPhone® 4S to Apple TV.

â??People are going to love streaming movies and TV shows in 1080p with the new Apple TV, and photos look beautiful displayed at the maximum resolution of your TV,â?? said Philip Schiller, Appleâ??s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. â??Apple TV is easier than ever to use with its new icon-based interface and the ability to access your purchased movies, TV shows and music right from iCloud.â??

iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can use AirPlay to stream music, photos and videos from their devices directly to their HD TV with Apple TV. iPhone 4S or iPad users can use AirPlay Mirroring to show the screen of their device right on their HD TV, allowing them to stream web pages, spreadsheets or even games.**

Apple TV makes it easy to enjoy iTunes video, music and photo libraries from your computer right on your HD TVâ??and with iCloud you can instantly enjoy content that was purchased on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as well. iTunes Match customers can now play their entire music library from iCloudâ??even songs theyâ??ve imported from CDs. Users can also control Apple TV with their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using the Remote app, available as a free download on the App Storeâ?˘ (www.itunes.com/appstore).

As nice as the new Apple TV sounds, I'm not buying one until they stop the political nonsense and let Hulu's app run on the device. Until then, I'm perfectly happy to keep my aged MacBook (with a curving battery ) hooked up to the TV to feed my shows.

I assume this is a new device rather than a software upgrade to the AppleTV I bought last year?

I've had both of the previous ATVs. I'll probably buy the new one as well to replace my original ATV in my basement. Hulu+ sucks on a television conduit device (not computer). It's unfortunate that Hulu can't get the licensing stuff hammered out. Even plain old Hulu is great on a computer, but is so seriously neutered on content on a conduit device that it just makes me want to blind myself with a sharp chisel.

What he/she said. I considered an ATV until I opted for the Boxee. Haven't looked back, and I'm not confined to specific file types/formats.

Nope. Until now, I hadn't heard about a Roku (which means I should call their marketing department and make a pitch, lol)... It looks great though, and I think I'll be giving it a shot soon...

I tried Boxee -- at least the software version -- and it kinda sucked. I found the UI to be hideous, and it also had problems working with Hulu (as did Plex). Mind you, I realize that problems with Hulu stem from Hulu locking them out, but that's irrelevant to me. I need a device that's going to work with all the services I use regularly.
